In another implementation, the transceiver system has a receiver-to-transmitter transfer latency uncertainty of zero. In yet another implementation, the transceiver system has a word aligner latency uncertainty of zero and a receiver-to-transmitter transfer latency uncertainty of zero. In one specific implementation, the receiver-to-transmitter transfer latency uncertainty is eliminated by using the transmitter parallel clock as a feedback signal in the transmitter phase locked loop (PLL).

This allows for having a fixed and known latency between the receipt and transmission of bits for all phases of parallelization by the deserializer. In one specific implementation, the total delay due to the bit shifting by the word aligner and the bit slipping by the bit slipper is zero since the bit slipper slips bits so as to compensate for the bit shifting that was performed by the word aligner.06-25-2009

20110080937TRANSMIT PSD CEILING IN PACKET-BASED OFDM SYSTEMS - Adjusted maximum transmit PSD levels have an effect on the SNR. If the ADC noise is assumed to be the limiting factor, then there can be a benefit for reducing the maximum transmit PSD level. For example, by lowering the maximum transmit PSD level from −50 dBm/Hz to −70 dBm/Hz results in an increase in SNR for subcarriers above 30 MHz. The SNR for subcarriers above 30 MHz can increase from 30 db (−80−(−110)) to 50 db (−80−(−130)). Therefore, by changing the maximum transmit PSD level, applying a ceiling on PSD mask, the aggregate sum of the available SNR's over the available subcarriers is increased, therefore increasing the obtainable OFDM data rate. In other words, a maximum transmit PSD mask can be used to lower the transmit PSD value of at least one subcarrier which results in an increase in SNR for at least one subcarrier.04-07-2011

20110103436TRANSMIT PSD CEILING IN PACKET-BASED OFDM SYSTEMS - Adjusted maximum transmit PSD levels have an effect on the SNR. If the ADC noise is assumed to be the limiting factor, then there can be a benefit for reducing the maximum transmit PSD level. For example, by lowering the maximum transmit PSD level from −50 dBm/Hz to −70 dBm/Hz results in an increase in SNR for subcarriers above 30 M Hz. The SNR for subcarriers above 30 MHz can increase from 30 db (−80-(−110)) to 50 db (−80-(−130)). Therefore, by changing the maximum transmit PSD level, applying a ceiling on PSD mask, the aggregate sum of the available SNR's over the available subcarriers is therefore increasing the obtainable OFDM data rate. In other words, a maximum transmit PSD mask can be used to lower the transmit PSD value of at least one subcarrier which results in an increase in SNR for at least one subcarrier.05-05-2011
